JACKSON, Miss.-- One policy that takes effect on Monday under ObamaCare has many health care providers not too happy.
This policy has been coined the "re-admission policy" for Medicare patients that leave the hospital but have to come back within thirty days.
If this happens, Dr. Randy Easterling M.D. says, "If you have a certain percentage of these patients re-admitted within a 30 day period, then when you get to a certain tickle point you're going to be fined 1% of your total Medicare reimbursement."
That means a lot of many lost.
Dr. Easterling added, "Hundreds of thousands of dollars for some hospitals."
Dr. Easterling also told News Mississippi the bad part of the policy is that a patient can be re-admitted for something totally unrelated and it hurt the hospital.
For example if someone can in for a broken arm on one day and then two weeks later came back for mono, then it still doesn't matter.
Some physicians think this is just a money grab to fund other parts of ObamaCare that need the money.
